Earlier this year I took a look at how Twitter’s stock had performed compared to Facebook’s in 2014.
The short answer: pretty poorly. While they started the year tracking each other pretty closely, by July Facebook was outperforming Twitter by an eye-opening 80 percent.
Fast-forward five months later, and that situation has got even worse.
Emoji translates to “picture character” in Japanese, and these little characters have revolutionised the way many people communicate around the internet and through their mobile devices.
Twitter is no exception. Last month the platform open-sourced its entire emoji collection for the world to enjoy. And they do, in their hundreds of millions. So here’s the big question: what’s the most popular emoji on Twitter?
So you want to use social media to promote your business, products and services?
Smart play. But for best results on social you need clear objectives and an organised, winning strategy. You need a plan. And you need to do the work.
More than 80 percent of Twitter’s 284 million active users engage on the platform from their mobile device, and Twitter wants to let advertisers fully exploit that metric.

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo’s family trust began unloading their Twitter stock last month, selling 283,460 shares in two separate transactions on November 3rd and November 17th.
On December 5th they sold another 141,730 shares, reducing their investment in Twitter to just 25 percent of their original stake.
Now, they’ve sold it all.
